Hi Laurie! I'm 40 and was diagnosed with PCOD a couple of years ago after being unable to conceive. The docs did a blood test because I also had an incredible breakout of acne, a bit of unwanted facial hair under my chin, and weight gain in my torso. I was put on Clomid and Glucophage (to conceive), but it was unsuccessful. It pains me to think that my PCOD is a result of my weight, but if I were to be honest with myself, I would have to say it very well could be. (I need to lose a good 75lbs.) Anyway, now that I've stopped trying to get pregnant (thankfully I have a great little boy), I am tackling the acne with accutane. I'm in my 3rd month and it seems to be working. My acne was BAD, cystic. I lost alot of confidence, but it is starting to come back. Next, I need to tackle the weight thing. What makes it hard is that I've also got hormonal imbalances in both my thyroid and adrenal gland. Crazy, but I feel like I'm deteriorating. Guess we just have to hang in there and be grateful for the wonderful things we do have! Feel free to contact me if you want to vent or share. Good luck!
